Personal Attention

At Wilkes, you won’t get lost in the crowd. Professors, staff and coaches know you by name and are dedicated to helping you identify your strengths and to achieve your goals. At Wilkes,

  • Our expert professors engage students in their scholarship and research.
  • The university provides funding to support student travel to academic conferences.
  • Our award-winning e-mentor program matches first-year students with an upperclassman, usually from the same major, who will serve as a guide and friend from orientation through the first semester. Friendships often last long afterward.
  • Students who are still exploring options for majors benefit from exceptional support and advising resources.

The faculty at Wilkes University, they love their students. They love their jobs, and above anything, they love Wilkes University.

I work closely with faculty through observations, through field experiences. Faculty here does a good job at advising you through your curriculum and your goals and progress to obtaining your degree.

There are a lot of opportunities to get involved in research, and there's university funding that supports students traveling to conferences.

If a student doesn't know what exactly they want to major in when they come to Wilkes, we have resources at the University College that help guide them into picking a major. The e-Mentor program is a program that's run through Student Development, and it works with first-year students. Current students here serve as the e-Mentors themselves, and we work with the first-year students through orientation as well as through the first semester that you're here at Wilkes. We run a variety of programs for them to get them interactive and to see what all our campus has to offer overall.

The personal attention at Wilkes University has helped me develop my interpersonal skills and develop as an individual and not just a professional.


Los profesores en la Universidad Wilkes aman a sus estudiantes. Ellos aman su trabajo, y, por encima de todo, aman a la Universidad Wilkes.

Trabajo de cerca con los profesores a través de observaciones, a través de experiencias de campo. Aquí los profesores llevan a cabo un muy buen trabajo de asesoría a través de tu plan de estudios, tus metas y tu progreso para que obtengas tu título.

Hay muchas oportunidades para participar en investigación, y la universidad tiene fondos que apoyan a los estudiantes que viajan a conferencias.

Si un estudiante no sabe exactamente en qué quiere especializarse cuando viene a Wilkes, tenemos recursos en el University College que ayudan a guiarlos para que elijan una especialidad. El programa e-Mentor es un programa operado a través de Desarrollo Estudiantil, y funciona con los estudiantes de primer año. Los estudiantes que actualmente tenemos aquí sirven como e-Mentores, y trabajamos con los estudiantes de primer año por medio de orientación, así como a lo largo del primer semestre que pases aquí en Wilkes. Tenemos diversos programas para ellos con el fin de que interactúen y vean todo lo que nuestro campus tiene para ofrecer en general.

La atención personal en la Universidad Wilkes me ha ayudado a desarrollar mis habilidades interpersonales y a desarrollarme como persona, y no solo como profesional.
